The Sustainability of an Evolving Skyline

Mark Winslow, Project Executive of Environmental Solutions at Gilbane Building Company

As our cities change and evolve it will become increasingly important to hold ourselves accountable to ensure the sustainability of our spaces not only after they have been built, but during the construction process as well.

Note: This event is now a video webinar.

Studies are showing that the carbon footprint of a high rise building is equal throughout its lifetime to the emissions created during the building process. Mark Winslow, Project Executive, Environmental Solutions at Gilbane Building Company, has over 30 years of industry experience and is responsible for addressing a variety of environmental, industrial hygiene and sustainable issues as they relate to the construction industry.

Jacob Higginbottom, Project Executive at EYP, will join Mark for an engaging and interactive Q&A with the audience. Jacob is an architect with a passion for sustainable design, reduced impact living and carbon reduction strategies in the built environment.

Join us for Design Museum Mornings for a conversation about sustainability and the path to attain net-zero carbon.
